Can you believe it, yet another snow forecast for this evening? This semester continues to bring challenges with drivers forced to negotiate snow mountains, which once beautiful- are now reduced to dirty piles of funky ice. We’re hangin but dreaming of warmer climes. One good sign my orchid is beginning to flower.
Welcome to the homepage of Dr. Alvina E. Quintana,
Associate Professor of Women's Studies
University of Delaware
2010 began with some killer storms, two of them blizzards, which delayed the opening of the new semester by a few days. I’m looking forward to this semester and am especially excited about my new class “Feminisms & the African Diaspora” which is cross listed with Black American Studies and the English Department.
Welcome Back. The Fall semester is now under way, the weather has shifted and everyone is in work-mode. This semester I’m teaching Introduction to Sexuality and Gender and Women, Race & Ethnicity, with a focus on Latinas in the U.S.A.
My Women’s Studies capstone course (Women’s Stories: Testimonio, Memoirs & Oral History) has entered the virtual world of Second Life, where they created an installation featuring examples of their three-minute videos of the Latina Oral history project.
Note: With this link, you must download Second Life before you can view the student video clips.
Happy New Year! We’re in the early weeks of our Spring term. This semester I’m teaching the Women’s Studies capstone course and Women’s Stories: Testimonio, Memoirs & Oral History.
Just wishing everybody a happy holiday season! Have fun and be safe!
